Like many people who choose to live overseas, Katie Capstick never imagined that she'd leave her home in the northwest corner of England... until a chance conversation with a Chinese student at university led to an internship with the U.N in Beijing. After 6 months in China she was hooked, and for the last year and a half shes been doing the "Expat Two-step," scrambling to find jobs that would allow her to stay in the country. Now she's got her sights set on following her passion of working for gender equality around the world, but will she do it as an "expat" or a "migrant?" Or do we need a new word that doesn't carry any of their baggage?
